Last week I listened to a Kathy Griffin interview on NPR on my way into work. At one point she mentioned she knew NPR listeners were readers. Poor Kathy either forgot to mention or it was cut out that her own book is being released in September. The title is a plea for Oprah to read the book and recommend it – Official Book Club Selection.
I’ve found more than one book added to my TBR pile or Amazon Wish List because I heard the author interviewed on NPR. The most recent one was Annie’s Ghosts which I really enjoyed.
Have you bought a book after hearing an author speak about it? On the other side of the coin, if you’ve had a book published, did you find the sales increased after doing radio interviews?
